FAGGOT BUNDLES (2019)

Found object sculptures, dimensions variable.

Research into the etymology of the term faggot revealed that the term has historical routes in processes of bundling – primarily the bundling of sticks or twigs into piles known as faggots. This series of work explores this process using found objects including poles, rope, and gloves. The specific method of binding follows the shibari bondage tradition, offering reference to (queer) sexual culture.
